Last night a sweet little kitten, came to our doorstep! She was so hungry! She had a bad case of fleas though so she couldn't come inside, our other cat might have gotten them. We got her a nice box and lined it with towels and put it under a tarp in a lean-to and cut a little flap so that she could go in and out as she pleased, we left her a bowl of food and water. This morning we couldn't find her. We were going to call the animal shelter because my parents didn't want another medium-haired cat. =/ But she showed up again tonight and we gave her more food and moved her box by our front door. I put some flea/tick medicine on her and refreshed her water. Its so sad, everytime someone turns on the outside light she makes this pitiful meow, she wants the attention so badly! I don't want to get attached to her incase we end up having to let her go. I go out there occasionally and call her(she comes when I call 'kitty'! =o) and pet her a bit. I don't know what to do because since she is never here during the day time I can't call the shelter to come pick her up. She is the lovelyest little kitten! So adorable and sweet! I'm hoping her fleas will start to clear up soon. Its so cold out there at night. Nice and warm in the box though(I stuck my hand in there to get the food bowl). My question is, how can I try to convince my parents to let me keep her? Our other cat is about 9 and also a medium-hair. We already have 5 animals in the house and I had already asked for my own ball python. It just seems like they don't care about her although my dad did do a good job making her shelter for the night. =) And my mom admitted that she was adorable and loved to be petted. So does anyone have any advice for me? I really don't want to keep her locked up over night and give her to the animal shelter.
